What programming language do you think you produce code faster (not necessary faster code Very Happy)?

Pseudo-code for ideas/explanations.

C & asm for real code Very Happy

I would say C, followed by asm, but sometimes I waste too much time trying to get the typedefs right. Other HLLs I spend too much time to find out they can't do what I want.

you will get most answers saying it assembler. this is fasm board.
honestly not a single language qualifies. language is just a tool.
and the tool becomes most productive in the task it was designed for.

Delphi 4/5 and vb6 are nice for quick'n'dirty things before ASMing (especially Delphi with it's asm keyword). Never tried C (but can understand .h files Laughing )

I even use qbasic to test algo's before ASMing 16-bit stuff - being able to easily print variables and trace etc is cool Very Happy

Well if you can type fast enough then asm of course. Wink

Then it would no longer be a language.

Which language I'm most productive in depends on the task at hand...

for example I wrote a piece of code for integrating subversion repository commits with a Vanilla forum, so we get an automatic forum post with commit details. I used python for this, because it has built-in and convenient string handling, regular expressions et cetera., and very handy wrapper for libcurl. Even if I had already installed regex and curl C/C++ libraries, Python would be a bit more convenient.

vbscript can also be pretty powerful, and it's certainly nice that you can add functionality in Excel this way. Instead of writing a full custom app to handle my work hours, an excel sheet with some custom vbscript does the trick, and saved me a good amount of programming.

Don't limit yourself, build a nice language toolbox instead, and pick the appropriate tool for the task...

I attempt, but often fail, to write programs, rather than generate code.
